European Influence in South America and Artist Immigration, 1850-1900
This maps shows the immigration of Europeans into South America to take advantage of the abundance of raw materials from 1850 to 1900. Their immigration brought new artistic styles and the emergence of art academies and schools of fine art. Due to the heavy European influence, many South American artists decided to make the voyage to the major art cities in Europe, like Paris and Rome.
Additionally, areas of conflict and country borders of 1900 are indicated, along with areas still under European control. .
